EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I am running this year’s Boston Marathon in support of South Shore Hospital and their cancer care program. Like you, I've witnessed the toll cancer can take on our friends, our colleagues and our loved ones. The disease forces good people to put their lives on hold to combat extraordinary hardship. I know my 26.2 mile run is a small personal endeavor but the fight against cancer is a big challenge we all share. I write to you today to ask you to join me in this fight to enhance cancer care for those in need.
Cancer is a global fight but it hits us close to home and our communities. Cancer is the leading cause of death in Massachusetts and the single biggest health threat to the residents of the South Shore. It's why I chose to run with South Shore Hospital - a hospital where I was born and where 400,000 other patients receive care each year. Because of their longstanding clinical affiliations with Children's Hospital, Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women's Hospital, patients and their families have access to the most advanced medical care.
A donation today to South Shore Hospital will help them continue to fund support of the latest diagnostic technology, advanced surgical procedures, comprehensive inpatient care and access to clinical trials, new therapies and expert clinicians.
I appreciate your thought and consideration in making a donation. I look forward to representing you all on Marathon Monday and supporting the countless people who have been affected by this disease. Together we can make a small impact on a worthy cause.
With sincere thanks,
